Find Out How Much Your Spouse is Really Worth
Studies have show that between 40% and 50% of first marriages in the U.S. end in divorce, and common experience suggests that 99.9% ofdivorces are difficult and emotional. It is not uncommon for divorce proceedings to turn into a lengthy battle over ownership of marital assets. What is truly surprising, however, is how often husbands and wives are unaware of the extent of their spouse’s assets – and unable to find documentation of those assets without professional assistance
Individuals who attempt their own asset searches in matrimonial cases often begin, appropriately, with a review of bank statements and a search of the family’s filing cabinet: hunting down old copies of tax returns and canceled checks. These steps can generate valuable historical information. However, household finances can be complicated and messy. Even the most diligent record-keepers may find that they have incomplete documentation of all assets and expenses over the course of a long marriage.
Moreover, when an estranged spouse moves out, one of the first things they typically do will be to open new (non-joint) bank accounts of their own – further diminishing transparency of their finances.
In these cases, experienced private investigators can help identify and document assets that your spouse has concealed.The art of locating hidden assets is a complex and intensive process that can involve several methods of legal asset identification, such as field investigation, proprietary databases, foreign sources, surveillance, vendor records and payments, third party information, document collection and verification. All searches must be compliant with federal regulations, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and GLB financial privacy laws.
